I recently visited your beautiful city, took tons of pictures, and realized that I can't ID this sculpture:

I did Google it, but couldn't find any info either...
Anyone knows anything about it? Title, artist? Any info would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you!

Zhang Huan, Pilgrimage, 2001

Quote:
Pilgrimage is a life-size granite sculpture of Chinese performance artist Zhang Huan lying naked and face-down. It is based on Zhang’s first performance after moving to the United States in 1998. The performance, Pilgrimage: Wind and Water in New York, was part of the Inside Out: New Chinese Art exhibition at P.S. 1, a contemporary art museum in Queens, New York. For this work, Zhang performed the remarkable feat of lying naked, face down, on a block of ice placed on a traditional Chinese bed for 10 minutes on a public street.

The work, Zhang says, is about his experience coming to America and his fear of New York City. Zhang explains, “I do like the city, but at the same time I have an unnameable fear. I want to feel it with my body, just as I feel the ice. I try to melt off a reality in the way I try to melt off the ice with the warmth of my body.”* Zhang’s performance is a test of endurance but also a kind of existential meditation. Zhang believes he had to be naked to feel the full severity of the ice against his body and to arrive at a spiritual state of being. When he puts his body in extremely uncomfortable situations, he tries to distance himself from his condition, or as he puts it, “let my mind leave my body.” When this happens, he can’t feel any pain. Zhang says for him, this is a spiritual experience.

A performance artist at heart, Zhang thinks of Pilgrimage as an active and interactive work: “...in the winter, the water keeps the form of the body as art, but in the summer, when the water is not frozen, I want people to just have a drink.”* Because of the continuous changes the sculpture will endure throughout the seasons, Zhang considers this sculpture to be a longer performance, one that never ends.

I don't see them either. Looks like a Google Photos link. May have to manually click on the photo and choose "Share" to generate a shareable link. Be warned, though, that will DOX you. Probably better off uploading as an attachment or adding it to a folder here with all the PII removed.

I will try to repost them tomorrow. Posting pictures from Google is quite difficult.
